Did you know that...?

The term Hamburger derives from the words "Hamburger" and "Steak" literally: coming from the city of Hamburg.

It seems that the famous American sandwich was invented by German immigrants who, around the 19th century, reached the new continent by ship, and chose to ration their food by creating beef meatballs. The name they chose for this tasty dish was Hamburger.

Americans do not recognize this origin and prefer to assign the honor of the invention to Walter Anderson of Wichita (Kansas) who, between 1915 and 1916, standardized the cooking of grilled beef patties by serving them with slices of sweet bread.

If the origin is the result of various legends, what we can collect today are many recipes which, one more delicious than the other, enhance the flavor of this particular yet simple sandwich.

How is the American hamburger prepared?

Americans tend to flavor their dishes with spices like paprika and thick sauces like BBQ sauce.

Alternative burgers

The variations when it comes to burgers don't just concern the dough, but range from spices to aromas, without distinction! The secret is to maintain the right balance to best satisfy the palate!

Vegetarian burgers, blended burgers, chickpea burgers and mixed burgers. Recent years have seen a significant increase in these variants, after all, customer needs have become more refined and the market is responding to needs in a different way.

Organizing a hamburger lunch has never been so easy, and if the grill is not your preferred method of cooking, you can opt for a baked hamburger, which is (almost) as good as grilling.

The choice to add vegetarian burgers can be a winning one even if only carnivores are present at the table: an alternative side dish that perfectly matches the mood of the lunch!
